Notes of appreciation from clients:

Portraiture...

Our friends and family raved about the portraits you made of our children! We couldn't be more pleased. We had such a wonderful experience when I sat for my bridal portrait and when you photographed our wedding; we knew we wanted you to be the ones to photograph the kids. The way you worked together to capture the essence of their individual personalities is what makes the portraits so special to us. The quality and finish of the portraits is phenomenal. Someone even asked us who painted them! Thanks so much, Joy

Thanks for making our "photo session" so enjoyable. Karen and I wanted something out of the ordinary; her grandmother's antique chair and informal poses, and you provided it perfectly. I was a bit reluctant at first but ended having fun during our appointment. The finished portrait was perfect in every respect and has a place of honor in our home. It seems the portrait not only captured our images but a memory of an enjoyable event. Thanks again for the very pleasant experience. Walter

...when I met with you, I knew that this was not going to be mere portrait, but artwork at its best. Our portraits are stunning! You have captured what to convey as a family in our portraits are stunning! You have captured what we wanted to convey as a family in our portraits to perfection: love, unity and God's blessedness. Your creativity, professionalism and patience with our 2 year old were exceptional. Thank you both for blessing our family with your gift. Antress

Just a note to let you know how very pleased I am with my bridal portrait. It will be treasured for years. Your professional teamwork and unique flair make your work like that of a true " artist." Mary

Fantastic! Fabulous! I can't thank you enough for the wonderful job Debbie did. She was just perfect, so professional and smooth. She was quick and got exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much, we're thrilled Pat

So far you have taken the portrait for my parents 25th wedding anniversary, Shelly's engagement and bridal portraits, and wedding pictures and now you've done mine. Our album is the perfect way to remember the special evening that went by in a blink. After seeing my sister's album and hearing all of the comments others made about it, I was worried mine would not turn out as well, but you out did yourself, our album is magnificent! Shelly and I have a constant argument as to who has the better album. I do not think there is a winner! Stephanie

You both made me and all the people involved with the wedding feel so comfortable. Your friendliness, organization and attention to detail are what I believe contributed to this. Both of you were great. Thanks for helping make wonderful memories of our wedding. Kim

...As I leaf through the pages of our albums, I feel as though I am reliving those wonderful moments again. I just want to thank you for the memories you have preserved for us. It felt as though "friends" were doing all of the work and we were there to enjoy it. With deepest regards, Karen MOB

...I can second that, Ralph Melvin did my wedding last October and my pictures are incredible. Everyone has said they are the best they have ever seen and my portrait was awesome. He is the best in Charlotte!!! Allison

We feel so blessed to have had you capture the memories of the most important day of our lives. Our album is breathtaking! And my portrait is simply beautiful. With our wedding day over, we have two precious keepsakes that we will treasure. I wish I could do it all over again! Sara

We just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with our wedding album. It is beautiful! It is obvious that each picture was handled with care, as the cropping and finishing on every one is meticulous. The thoughtful placement and matting of all the pictures truly brings the album to life. You have given us the ability to enjoy our special day many times over in the years to come. Thanks you for your hard work. Sharon and David

Thank you so much for everything you've done for me. People raved over my portrait and my photo album. You did super job and you guys were just wonderful! Thanks again for giving me confidence and making me feel beautiful for my big day! Dallas

Thank you both so much for everything you did to make my wedding day the best and happiest of my life. Your help and encouragement meant so much. Karen

Wow! What a great time we had at our wedding! We really appreciate your professionalism and experience that added to our special day. Our families and friends took notice of your guidance and great shots. Also, on a special note Debbie you did one heck of a job directing everyone with such a gracious smile. We believe that even more recognition should be given to Ralph Melvin Photography in the Charlotte Area. Thank you for being part of our wedding. Shawn and Lisa

Thank you so much for all of your help on the day of our wedding. With everyone running around crazy, it was nice to have you guys to keep things calm! Joy
